The ancient authors knew that the essential comic urges are food, sex, and money. Magruder presents three comedies based on them: Turcaret (1709), a satiric portrayal of a tax farmer by Lesage combines neoclassical comedy of character with comedy of manners; The Triumph of Love by Marivaux pokes fun at 18th-century society while exploring deception and the power of love to transform; and Eating Crow by Libiche offers a visual image of a grossly expanding society in which the stomach serves as a bank. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
